What s the A/C compressor oil capacity in 2003 dodge durango with rear A/C


If it was shipped empty just add the amount that's stamped on the compressor. But most of the ones that I have seen where shipped wet/ full . to check get a beaker and simply remove the plugs and drain the oil into the beaker. when the system is opened it is recomended that you replace the RECEIVER DRYER also. if the compressor is damaged internally then you need to replace the EXPANSION VALVE also. hope this helps

Refrigerant Oil Capacities


Total System Fill - Front A/C Only 5.07 fl oz (150 ml) Total System Fill - Front and Rear A/C Only 7.40 fl oz (220 ml) Receiver/Drier 1.0 fl oz (30 ml) Front Evaporator 2.0 fl oz (60 ml) Rear Evaporator 1.0 fl oz (30 ml) Condenser 1.0 fl oz (30 ml) Compressor drain and measure the oil from the old compressor

CHARGE EMPTY AC


year, make, model, engine size?

If your changing those items it would be best to have the system placed under a vacuum. Typically this is done for about 30-45 minutes to help boil out any moisture in the system. The system can then be filled.

You can fill the system through the low side port. Recharge cans typically come with a low side fitting that will attach to this port. The low side fitting is always the smaller fitting on the larger line.

There should be a sticker under the hood that has the max refrigerant capacity. You will likely need several cans of recharge to get to this max. get as close as you can without going over.

Start the vehicle. turn on the a/c, attach a can of refrigerant to the low side fitting. open the valve on the can. you should hear the transfer of refrigerant from the can to the a/c system. eventually the a/c compressor will kick on when the low side pressure has built up. add more refrigerant as necessary.

these are generic instructions at best since you did not post a year, make, model, or engine size.

The car has been 134a converted by the previous owner. The new sticker showing how much to add is unreadable.I don't want to over fill it. How much coolant in total does a 1992 Buick Century take?...


just add freon until your meter reads 40-45 psi . that way you'll know you have enough in the system. if you add the full amount it will overcharge the system. but if the system is completely empty then it will hold 2.5 lbs of r-12 or (3) 12oz cans of r-134a

Where do I add coolant for the air conditioning?


I take you bought one of those 20 oz bottles of fill it yourself freon?? No problem, they work, follow the aluminum pipes out of the compressor on the front of the motor, they should head back to the firewall, somewhere on the top of these you will find a little cap, they should be marked, H and L, you want the L, low pressure side, It is the only side it will fit on anyway, fire up the engine, turn on the air, shake and squirt, watch the meter, take it up to full. You should be ok, for about 6 months, then, guess what?
